ASM Statement on COVID-19 and 2021 Meetings

Nov. 12, 2020

At ASM, the safety of our meeting attendees is a top priority. We recognize the evolving COVID-19 situation has had a significant impact on our members and meeting participants. From the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations around large gatherings to institutional travel restrictions, making decisions around travel and meeting attendance is challenging in this uncertain environment.

ASM Microbe 2021 is currently planned for June 3–7, 2021 in Anaheim, Calif. ASM is closely monitoring the situation and is committed to providing a forum for the microbial community as we begin planning for the 2021 meeting.   

Please refer to the COVID-19 resource page and follow ASM’s social media channels (FacebookTwitter and Instagram) for the most up-to-date information about the virus, the disease it causes and any impact on ASM meetings. Additionally, the city of Anaheim is posting information about visitor health and wellness.
